    Lv. 43 now and got my own mount. Makes the game so much more tolerable, especially since I'm beginning to find my way to the PvP side together with my guild. Truth to tell, the biggest reason why I still keep playing is running the instances with other players.

    Doubt, though, that I will continue once this char is "complete." I.e: start another. By the way, there doesn't seem to be any "Profanity Filter" -option in my "Interface Options" to disable the censorship. Anyone know why? :hmm:

    Perhaps because you have the Finnish version? Unsure. Mine was very easy to turn off.

    My Draenei warrior is level 39 and is fighting in the battlegrounds, just need 9 more Arathi Basin marks and she's out of there with a heap of good gear (new boots and belt from Arathi Basin, new necklace, ring, trinket and even a purple bracer from Warsong Gulch). However it was long going, Horde seem to have the better players, higher level players in the battle-grounds (I think Horde players are more considerate to their team, I find it very rude to join a battle-ground as a lower level since by doing so you're hindering your team) and they put some effort towards equipping themselves better than your average Alliance BGer. End result is that the win percentage for 30-39 Alliance is about 5%... so getting marks is a long and tiring (often frustrating) process.

    That spins around at 60 though, in my experience. Alliance are damn hard to beat in BG's at 60 without a pre-made. Luckily, my guild were the bomb so we just made a pre-made and destroyed all comers quickly. Reading this thread makes me want to buy TBC :shake: if only I had the money at mo...

    aye on 60 the allaince tends to outnumber the horde, so do to the silly battleground queues the alliance was much faster to form preset teams, to avoid long queues just to end up with noobs, that quickly moved to make semi-pro pvp teams that could whipe out random teams fast, to gain as much honour as possible (stupid honor system), the horde.

    like barmy i was luckely in a damn good premade, being in a random vs a fix is damn boring and frustrating.

    @wordply i think they moved the profanity filter to the advance options under interface.

    Finally got everything I needed. I had to play and LOSE 40 Arathi Basin matches to get what I want. Talk about frustrating. The other frustrating thing was that we would have won if the team wouldn't concentrate on taking a particular point and would mix it up from time to time (why attack a point that is being defended by 7-8 Horde when the next one that is the same distance away is only being defended by 2-3?).

    Now I have a choice as to what mount I want my character to have since I'm already revered (or was it exhalted? Whatever the highest reputation is) with all Alliance factions. I'm thinking of getting a ram to simply stand out, sure I could get the wierd elephant thingie that I have no hope in spelling correctly but every Draenei bar paladins has one of those. I would get a mechanostrider however they're limited to just Gnomes and Dwarves.

    Settled on the ram, I turn heads when I ride by being the only damn Draenei on the server with a ram (thus far). Got to 43, covered in blue BoP plate apart from shoulders and pants but my old Herod's shoulders and Scarlet pants are doing me quite well anyway.

    Been gobbled up by a nice RP guild, full of 70s who lend me a hand every now and again - so that's nice. Being a fury warrior with two regen items (level 20 WSG trinket and level 40 WSG trinket granting 9 hp every 5 seconds) means I can actually fight a monster the same level as me 1v1 and come out of the battle on 80% health, even manage to take on 3 monsters the same level as me without needing to resort to potions. It's getting mighty interesting.

    My guild hopes I will hit 70 soon, re-roll my talent points and become their main tank but that could take some time. The Draenei are an awesome race, really fun racial ability, look hella different to any other race and in Soviet Exodar, ship crash YOU!

    Well, it's really a time-to-cast regen spell. 1.5 sec casting time and the health healed depends on your level (I think the formula is (level * 15) + 50 health healed). My character has about 3000 health at level 43 and the spell heals them for about 650-700 health, in effect increasing their health by about 25% (as opposed to a tauren's racial of +10% total hp). But the massive advantage is that you can cast it on allies also.

    I can finally understand now why these kind of game are so addictive. I'm playing Rappelz (kind of WoW) and I am very into it. I don't play anything else for the last month and I don't even feel like reading forums...

    Lv.55. Just 5 more levels to full builds, since I don't have Burning Crusade installed. And 500g to an epic mount. After that it's a bit of raiding and stuff until I get bored and quit. It's always a bugger to get the right indegridients for enchanting, when no one ever sells "rugged leather" or "nether essences" when you need them. :/

    For the BG's it really used to depend on the server. Like for Thrall unless you were going against a twinked out set of Horde our Alliance guys were 50/50 except in Alterac valley where we only ever lost like 2 or 3 Alterac Valley matches before they did this group of server things. Now in Alterac Valley we get pounded alot and it's just frustrating when 1 or 2 or perhaps even 3 twinks at worst turns into 6 or 7 or 8 Twinks from several different servers and all our side are like low levels for the particular matchup.

    Sadly we lose regularly now.

    My Pally is level 52 now though and I've taken out things that are 5 levels higher. 2 levels higher when elite.

    My Feral Druid(43) with all of the +str and +agi gear is shaping up to be even nastier. Having taken out an elite 4 levels higher solo and generally has no problem taking on two or three her level on all her own. Granted a Crit rate of 22% in shape changed form as well as a 21% dodge rate and healing 4% of max hp from leader of the pack aura every time I crit more than 6 seconds apart helps alot because I heal over 100hp each time it triggers. it works out to about every 3 swings when she's really on a string of crits.

    54 and running BRD while at the same time helping my guild members whenever possible now that I can pretty much solo RFD and anything lower without much hassle.

    Sadly I'm finding it difficult to procure decent equipment now and I've also got an Orc Shaman running on the side.

    your almost high enough to go into Outland. Good equipment galore awaits you there. In several different styles in fact.

    Level 70 mage, 60 warrior, and 60 druid on Alliance on Kel'Thuzad. I'm currently hammering out the arenas, and our team averages a ranking of 10 or so in our battlegroup.

    I bought The Burning Crusade. Started leveling my rogue. Got to nearly level 62, then got really, really bored so thought I'd try out a blood elf. I made a blood elf warlock, and I'm having some right fun! It's a right good laugh. Warlocks are quite stupidly overpowered.

    Couldn't agree more, even as a fury warrior I can't take them down 1v1 when I'm technically immune to their most nasty ability: fear.

    Remember though, a warlock in a group is far different to a warlock solo. You gotta tell your tank that you're going to be DoTing everything so they know to keep refreshing their aggro dealers on the enemy. Played this way a warlock can turn a dungeon delve into a peaceful and stress free approach, dropping enemies like crazy.
